    i have the same -no hdmi signal- problem just yesterday, i guess the device was updated long time ago.. the weird thing is that i can access Windows 10 since i can log in the MiniX from any computer via Teamviewer that autoloads on Windows startup but no hdmi signal on TV or monitor at every possible resolution combination, experimented with some drivers with no luck, and no boot screen visible either, any ideas if this can be fixed since i can log into Windows via Teamviewer?
    *My LG smart tv shows the corresponding hdmi input as active but therefore no signal.

    Just FYI, I had the same thing happen to me a couple of days ago and just found this thread today. Apparently MS has not completely fixed the problem. Be warned to look out for a rash of these again.

    I assume no warranty is provided this long after buying the unit, so I will be ordering the required equipment. I will also try and ensure I update the bios, as I never saw that thread before my unit died. (Why read a support forum when everything is working....!)

    Happened to me twice - first time i sent it over and they flashed it and sent it back - 2 weeks after that after a reset it never booted up (light on but no HDMI signal).
    very disappointed, NEVER buying their junk again. and advice whoever reads this to refrain from doing so as well.

    At least they helped you ...happened to me just after they would fix and no help what so ever. I had before that prob bought over 20 minix boxes and friends prob bought 20. I will never buy another one. Came here to redownload the flash stuff and try again.

    So I have a similar problem. Win10 wanted to do an update yesterday which I scheduled during the night. Today I find it looping under reboot, just the logo, then reboot. Both bios and win recovery is accessible using reset button but I am not able to use any of the recovery function. Tried also safe mode but it fails the same way..

    Any suggestions? Possible to salvage or do I need to look for something new?

    Thanks in advance
